THE GREAT FALL BASH!
Saturday, October 31 4–7 pm
Trunk or Treat, Games, Food & Fun for the WHOLE family!
Our Annual Charge Conference will be held on Monday, November 9, at Cedar Hill UMC. Each year a list of inactive members is made available to all who would take the time to check it and see if you have any information about anyone on the list. This is a two-year process so one of the lists was read last year and if no more information has not been found out about those people, they will be removed from our roles by Charge Conference. The list of inactive members to be read for the first time is also linked and if you know anything about anyone on this list, please email Pat Daniel with the information–addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, membership information, etc. Click here to link to the list of inactive members.
PET MOBILITY PROJECT
The PET Mobility project seeks to reflect the love of God by bringing the gift of mobility and dignity to people living in developing countries who are unable to walk. 70+ million people worldwide are leg disabled due to birth defects, polio or casualties from war and civil unrest. PET stands for Personal Energy Transportation, which is a hand cranked cart that allows these children of God to go where ordinary wheelchairs cannot go. Since 1994, over 50,000 PET carts have been built through 26 affiliate workshops and distributed in 100 countries. There is no cost to the recipient. In addition to building the PET machines, the PET Mobility Project also manufactures, refurbishes and distributes such devices as canes, foldable walkers, crutches and conventional wheelchairs. Your contribution to this project will change lives.
The gentleman pictured has one leg and will soon lose the other. When the mission team was in Panama, they gave him a P.E.T. and it changed his life.

First United Methodist Church of Duncanville
Featuring performances by
Senior Adult November Adventure is to:
Join in and be a part of the renewed Aldersgate.
Visit your local home improvement store, purchase a 6 foot 1X4. Buy as many as you want to represent you and your family. Now the easy part. On one side of the board, write your name/names, pick a Bible verse, saying, poem, special date, whatever is special to you. The other side will be stained and put up for you. The name side will be on the back and the stained side will show as pictured above. Any wood will be fine therefore giving different textures and dimension to the wall. We are going to try to get these all collected by Thanksgiving.

Charlie Brown Christmas Costumes
On December 20 the children of FUMCD will be entertaining you with “A Charlie Brown Christmas” program. We will need lots of costumes. If you love to sew, we could use your help.
Contact with Betsy or Linda at 972.298.6121.
At the Modern Service Marissa Ladatto, Brea Knight and Tiffany Nickerson with Betsy Stelzer sang beautifully and at the Traditional Service Sandy Stowe, Betsy Stelzer and Brenda Davis brought back memories of the group Trinity.
Advent Devotional Book
This year we would like to print an Advent Devotional book composed of devotions written by our own people here at Duncanville First United Methodist Church. We need 27 people who are willing to write a devotional. Since this will be for Advent/Christmas if possible the devotional should be tied to the Christmas season – some special Christmas memory or a special meaning you find at Christmas. The devotional should be about 2 to 4 paragraphs long. The devotionals will be printed on a half sheet of paper.
DEADLINE: all devotionals should be emailed to email@example.com before November 9. This gives time for proofing and printing so the devotional books will be ready by
Great Food! Great Fellowship!
All are welcome.
